NatureCollections

NatureCollections app

In collaboration with NatureCollections, we are developing a new mobile app that encourages elementary school children to go outside and explore the natural world. Kids love to collect things and NatureCollections Beta helps kids take pictures of nature, identify the species in their photos and share and curate their photos in categories such as plants, birds and landscapes. They can also complete in photo challenges or photo scavenger hunts. The app is nearing beta phase and will be tested in late 2018. We are currently fundraising to release the app to the public—and we are always looking for kids to help with testing! Project leads include Joshua Lawler from EarthLab and UW School of Environmental and Forest Sciences and Katie Davis from UW iSchool.
